The Refreshing, It’s~About~Time Marketing Trend!

So, if you watched my {painfully emotional!} Origin Story, you might remember that one of my dreams {my vision!} is to empower 1000 Highly Sensitive Leaders {although all are invited if inspired!} to join me in my #6FigureImpactMovement because creating a Real, Tangible, Positive Impact Matters! {More expansion in a future post!}

In my quest to make a real, tangible, positive impact for other Coaches, Consultants, Trainers, Speakers, Authors & Leaders, I did a ton of research for other “marketing gurus” to follow. After all, one of the main lessons we’re taught in business is to not reinvent the wheel, right?

Find someone who’s doing what you want to do, learn from them, then turn around & do the same, right?

In the course of my research a very clear & distinct trend became obvious to me.

First, what I didn’t like…

In the course of my own ClickFunnels certification {many wonderful things I learned & people I met!}, although I was hands down in love with the software, I became aware that every time I ran across a video with the co-founder & CEO, Russell Brunson, I got a bit squirmy & just wanted to shut it off. The energy of the video was a bit stressing for me. Now, to be fair to Russell, a couple of things…

~ I love many things about what he teaches, his family values, & his Give Back component of his business &

~ He certainly has proved that he can make money!

… however, he hands down doesn’t resonate with ME.

& it’s not just Russell… there are plenty of fast talking, loud, slick sales & marketing {& business!} gurus out there that {at least for me} are missing something when it comes to real, genuine, authentic connection.

Have you ever experienced this? Are you familiar with I’m talking about?

& I don’t know about you, but at this stage of my life, I’m no longer willing to settle.

Life Is Too Short. Let’s Cut To The Chase. Let’s Build Our Own Community of Like~Minded, Like~Driven Encouragers, Uplifters, Supporters, & Action Takers. {Am I right?!}

So, what’s the Refreshing, It’s~About~Time Marketing Trend?!

Here it is…

#AuthenticMarketing

Yup!

This trend speaks from & to the heart. From our deep, authentic truths. There is no bait & switch. There are no shame or guilt tactics… nothing that makes us feel dirty or icky.

It’s all about creating real, genuine, authentic connections, then trust with our audiences.

It’s about using our own vulnerabilities to showcase strengths, which create real bonds with our audience.

It does however include natural urgencies because having our prospects make a decision one way or another is a service to you both!

It incorporates Value Adds vs Price Slashing. Let’s Own the Value of our products & services vs trying to inauthentically puff up the perceived value.

I choose to also believe that Authentic Marketing is best used for the intention of creating real impact.

No network marketing.

No get rich quick.

But real people. With a real deep seeded desire to help another achieve results. Yes, information is needed, but a movement that includes the intention to do our part to setup our clients to get real results.

Right?!  Do you agree? What would you add?

I’m not sure about you, but I for one am Crazy Excited about this new marketing trend & I’m extremely proud to stake my claim & say that I’m a part of it, too!

How about You?! Let’s #TakeAStand together!

To Our Collective Impact,
~Crystal 🙂
